This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Twain's language, allusions, and deliberate misstatements and malapropisms.The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain's sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, became an instant success in the year of its publication, 1884, but was seen by some as unfit for children to read because of its language, grammar, and "uncivilized hero." The book has sparked controversy ever since, but most scholars continue to praise it as a modern masterpiece, an essential read, and one of the greatest novels in all of American literature.Twain's satiric treatment of racism, religious excess, and rural simplicity and his accuracy in presenting dialects mark Huck Finn as a classic. His unswerving confidence in Huck's wisdom and maturity, along with the well-rounded and sympathetic portrayal of Jim draw readers into the book, holding them until Huck's last words rejecting all attempts to "sivilize" him.

A Serious Genre: The Apology of Children’s Literature is a collection of essays by scholars and academics from Romania, the United States and Turkey, who investigate the value and impact of what, since the 19th century, has been called, using an umbrella term, children’s literature. The volume is the fourth in a series, which focuses on literary genres which are considered marginal or low-brow, but which have a long tradition and display remarkable versatility and popularity. Previous volumes in the collection presented the historical novel (2010), romance (2012), and fantasy (2014). In this book, fourteen essays approach children’s literature from different angles, from classical Victorian children’s books to the latest film adaptation of The Hobbit, from adult narrators of children’s stories to children narrators of adult stories. The book addresses researchers, teachers and students with an interest in literature, literary theory and genre analysis, but it will also appeal to the wider public, given the flexibility and friendly nature of children’s literature.
